The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, on Friday in Gusau, issued Certificates of Return to Dr Dauda Lawal-Dare, Governor-elect of the state and his deputy, Mani Mumuni.

Prof. Sani Kalla, INEC National Commissioner in charge of Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara, also issued certificates of return to the 24 elected members of the State House of Assembly.

17 of the Assembly members were elected under the platform of the PDP while seven were elected under the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Mr Lawal-Dare shortly after receiving the certificate, lauded the commission and the electorate for ensuring a successful exercise.

He said that the efforts of the electorate would not be in vain as his administration would change the narrative against the banditry that ravaged the state.

He urged them to pray for the success of his administration.

NAN reports that INEC on March 21, declared Lawal-Dare of the PDP as winner of the 2023 governorship election.

Mr Lawal-Dare polled 377,726 votes to defeat Governor Bello Matawalle of the APC who scored 311, 976 votes.
